Guide To The Chicago Marathon

There’s nothing like the excitement of a race. 45,000 runners will hit the streets of Chicago to fulfill their dream of completing a 26.2 mile marathon this weekend. Many years ago, I was one of these happy runners, and now I am an even happier spectator. It’s true that running the race is like nothing else, but you can also get an adrenaline rush from watching the race.
